Barrington History

The history of Barrington began more than three hundred years ago when William Clark, one of its first settlers, acquired a large tract of land, which was primarily used for farming. The area was part of Gloucester County until it separated in 1844. With the development of the real estate and the railroad in the 1890s, the village of Barrington began to grow. The community was officially incorporated as a borough on March 27th, 1917, from parts of Center Township. It was based on the results of a referendum that was held on April 17th, 1917.
